    Bigelow Hill is a wonderful school. Mr. Brooks the principal cares so very much for the kids. My son has had great teachers each year he's been there and I'm sure he will next year as well. The mentoring (HOSTS) program is great too. Kids can get extra help with reading math vocabulary or whatever area they struggle with.
